Round I Go To Rotary

May 17, 2012


Just got back from a speaking engagement and luncheon at Karen’s Albemarle Rotary Club! She has talked about how much she loves going to rotary for years now, so it was fun to see what it was all about.


Before my talk, everyone enjoyed a nice buffet at the Boar’s Head Inn.




I filled up on salad, cottage cheese (can’t get enough!), fruit (ditto!) and some cheese slivers, plus tomato-y fish and rice.


Plus half a cup of cream of asparagus to warm me up!



Karen raves about the Boar’s Head bread pudding, so I had to give that a taste as well. It was quite good!


I presented an abbreviated version of my Real Food Talk to the group. I think it was well received because I got quite a few laughs out of them!

Back at home, blogging from the porch, with a belly rolling around as somebody wakes up from what must have been a nap!

She really does, especially in that adorable outfit! 😉

Yes! That outfit is so classy and flattering


5 Anna @ On Anna's Plate May 17, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Love those belly rolls…we still watch the videos we took of Lila moving and shaking in the belly! Crazy how much they can move!


6 Sana May 17, 2012 at 2:01 pm

:) Karen sounds like so much fun!


7 Catalina @ Cake with Love May 17, 2012 at 2:07 pm

I miss tomatoes, I used to eat them every day but after I was diagnosed with ulcer I said goodbuy to them :( I can’t get enough of cottage cheese to, I actually bought a lemon flavored flax seed oil from WF and add a little to the cottage cheese, it is so good!


8 Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio May 17, 2012 at 2:07 pm

Sounds like a fun event!


9 Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles May 17, 2012 at 2:08 pm

The more people are educated on the benefits of ‘Real Food’ the better! I think eating ‘real’ is money well spent…I hope to live a long and active life for as long as possible. Keep up the good work!

It’s hard to tell food quality from photos, but I’ve been a guest at a few Rotary lunches, and that looks WAY better than any of the food I remember.


11 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat May 17, 2012 at 2:13 pm

The lunch looks great! And tell Karen she looks fantastic in that colour!


12 Meghan May 17, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Sounds like a great afternoon :-)


13 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count May 17, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Looks like a lovely lunch!


14 Annette @FitnessPerks May 17, 2012 at 2:18 pm

What a fun event! I bet they loved your presentation :)


15 Katie @ Peace Love and Oats May 17, 2012 at 2:19 pm

I’ve never actually had bread pudding, but it looks so good!


16 Caroline @ After Dinner Dance May 17, 2012 at 2:33 pm

You are missing out! If you can find a GF bread pudding you have to try it!


17 Katie @ Peace Love and Oats May 17, 2012 at 2:38 pm

Haha I already started googling! Just found recipes so far!


18 Lindsey May 17, 2012 at 2:39 pm

I had some of their bread pudding lat Sunday at Mothers’ Day Brunch! It’s quite tasty!!


19 Krystina (Krystina Yogini) May 17, 2012 at 2:54 pm

I can’t believe how beautiful Karen looks. She looks younger and more radiant every time you post a picture of her.


20 kristen @ verbs and vignettes May 17, 2012 at 3:44 pm

seconded! she looks devine. must be all that Vaseline she puts on her face at night. 😉 I will never forget that that was her beauty secret to you. haha.

I love the spread of food! It sounds super yummy. I bet the club loved your talk!


23 Averie @ Averie Cooks May 17, 2012 at 3:08 pm

Rotary club meetings..blast from my childhood! My parents were involved in their local chapter.

And the cream of asparagus sounds good!


24 mary @ minutespermile May 17, 2012 at 3:17 pm

Are those southern teas sweet or unsweet?!


25 KathEats May 17, 2012 at 3:22 pm



26 Lexi @ You, Me, & A World to See May 17, 2012 at 3:41 pm

Yummmm is that Boar’s head the same as the lunchmeat company?


27 KathEats May 17, 2012 at 3:54 pm

I don’t think so


28 Michael Tavallaei May 17, 2012 at 3:50 pm

Aw, napping belly. Precious! Cream of asparagus soup and bread pudding both sound super good.

Karen looks really nice! I like her sandals!

I have been on a cottage cheese kick as well! I cannot get enough of it!


35 Amy May 18, 2012 at 9:58 am

Hi Kath,

Karen always looks so cute. I love her top in this photo! Do you happen to know where she got it?

Have a super time at the hospital during your classes! Happy Weekend!


36 KathEats May 18, 2012 at 10:29 am

I don’t know, sorry. Maybe she will see you comment though!


37 Karen May 18, 2012 at 11:45 am



38 Dana May 18, 2012 at 9:32 pm

Kath– I had no idea you had a blog! A friend and I were having dinner tonight, and we happen to be talking about bread in CVille and I was raving about your bread and how you too are an RD…of course she already knew and mentioned she follows your blog and loves your overnight oats! Hopefully, we can convince you to talk at a meeting next year:)


39 KathEats May 18, 2012 at 9:35 pm

:) that would be fun! Thanks for stopping by!
